Popular Tests and Services Offered by Alletess Medical Laboratory

Environmental Allergy Tests

The following environmental allergy tests are offered:

Inhalant Allergy Panel (featuring Regional IgE or Environmental Allergens):

Inhaled allergens can cause IgE reactions.  Accurate diagnosis and timely treatment, beginning with a detailed patient history, are essential for effective relief. 

Environmental allergy testing may include: 

  • Animal Allergy Assessment: exposure to animal allergens, produced mainly in the liver or secretory glands of pets, can occur in various settings such as homes, offices, and public transport. 

These allergens are present in animal skin, fur, and bodily fluids, and are released into the environment through shed dander, hair, and urine. They can easily transfer across different environments by adhering to dust or clothing.

  • The Comprehensive Health Exposure Panel: this panel assesses a wide range of allergens from insects, plants, chemicals, and more, found in various environments like workplaces, homes, and through personal use products. Understanding these exposures is critical for managing health and well-being.
  • Total IgE Testing: total IgE testing measures the overall level of IgE antibodies in the blood, helping to identify allergic responses and complementing specific allergen testing.
  • Regional Allergy Panels help determine seasonal and geographic allergy triggers in various regions across the US.

  • Northeast (CT, DE, MA, MD, ME, NH, NJ, PA, RI, VT)some text
  • Northwest (ID, MT, OR, WA, WY)some text
  • Southern (AL, DC, FL, GA, KY, NC, SC, TN, VA)some text
  • Southwest (AZ, CA, CO, NM, NV, UT)some text

Molds: Mold Immunoreactivity Panels test for prevalent molds found in buildings, vehicles, and foods, which are common causes of inhalant allergies and can trigger asthma or respiratory symptoms. Molds thrive in damp areas like basements, trashcans, and on moist foods such as bread and cheese.

Two levels of testing are offered to assess IgE, IgG and IgA immune responses to various molds.  

Alletess Medical Laboratory includes a Mold Elimination Plan to mitigate exposure risks.  

Vaccine Component Panel: vaccine components such as active antigens, conjugating agents, preservatives, stabilizers, antimicrobial agents, adjuvants, and culture media, can contain allergens like egg, gelatin, and yeast proteins. 

While anaphylaxis following immunization is rare, it's crucial for vaccination personnel to be prepared for such emergencies, especially since most reactions occur in individuals with a history of anaphylactic episodes. 

Food Allergy Tests

Food Allergy Panels (testing IgE responses to 15, 25, or 50 foods, or a Food Group Specific Allergy):

Food allergy testing detects IgE antibodies in response to food proteins, identifying potential immediate or delayed (up to 8 hours) allergic reactions which can range from mild to severe. 

It's important to distinguish between a food allergy and a food sensitivity; the former can be life-threatening and manifests quickly, while the latter involves delayed, non-life-threatening symptoms such as bloating and fatigue. Accurate diagnosis is crucial to manage and treat the correct condition effectively.

Food Allergy Panels include:

Allergen Component Panels: 

Allergen component testing identifies specific proteins or peptides within a larger food protein that might trigger allergic reactions. It is possible for individuals to react to these smaller components rather than the entire food protein, or vice versa. 

The allergen component panels offered by Alletess Medical Laboratory include:

  • Occupationalsome text
    • Egg (1 IgE): nGal d 4
  • Moldssome text
    • Aspergillus fumigatus (2 IgE): rAsp f 3, Asp f 4
    • Alternaria alternata (1 IgE): rAlt a 1
  • Grass Pollenssome text
    • Bermuda grass (1 IgE): nCyn d 1
    • Timothy grass (6 IgE): rPhl p 1, rPhl p 2, rPhl p 5b, rPhl p 6, rPhl p 7, rPhl p 12
  • Epidermal and Animal Proteinssome text
    • Cow (1 IgE): nBos d 6
    • Cat (4 IgE) 
    • Dog (6 IgE): rCan f 1, rCan f 2, rCan f 3, nCan f 4, nCan f 5, nCan f 6
    • Horse (1 IgE): rEqu c 1
  • Mitessome text
    • House dust mite (3 IgE): rDer p 2, rDer p 10, rDer p 1

Tick Bite Induced Meat Allergy Reaction:

Alpha-Gal syndrome is a food allergy to red meat like beef, pork, and lamb, often triggered by a bite from the Lone Star tick which transmits the alpha-Gal sugar molecule into the bloodstream. 

This can lead to mild to severe allergic reactions several hours after eating red meat. 

The Lone Star tick, originally prevalent in the southeastern U.S., has been expanding its range into the eastern and central regions and now is spreading further north and south.

The delayed onset of symptoms after consuming red meat made Alpha-Gal syndrome difficult to identify initially. Many people experiencing unexplained, frequent anaphylactic reactions who do not test positive for other food allergies, may actually be suffering from this condition.

This test assesses the alpha-Gal allergy response, a tick-related allergic reaction to a sugar found in red meats including beef, pork, venison, and lamb.  It is beneficial in the diagnosis of delayed reactions to red meat.

Food Sensitivity Panels

Food sensitivity testing identifies delayed reactions that can manifest days after exposure and may develop at any point in life, influenced by factors such as diet repetition, stress, and health conditions. 

Symptoms of food sensitivities include headaches, fatigue, nausea, skin issues (like eczema and acne), digestive problems (such as bloating and acid reflux), joint pain, brain fog, unexplained weight changes, difficulty concentrating, and behavioral changes.

Alletess Medical Laboratory provides comprehensive food sensitivity panels that measure IgG and/or IgA responses to a wide range of commonly consumed foods, available in both serum and blood spot formats.  

Autoimmune and Gastrointestinal Health Panels

The laboratory's gastrointestinal panels combine food sensitivity tests with markers for yeast overgrowth and gut bacteria imbalance, including tests for Candida and Helicobacter pylori. 

These comprehensive panels are invaluable for diagnosing complex cases of gastrointestinal discomfort and systemic immune responses linked to gut health.

Alletess Medical Laboratory offers the following Autoimmune and Gastrointestinal Health Panels:

Autoimmune and Fatigue Screen:

Early detection of autoimmune disorders is crucial to halt disease progression, prevent tissue damage, and maintain quality of life. Highly specific biomarkers enable early identification of particular disorders. 

The panel includes evaluations for:

  • Autoimmune Chronic Thyroiditis (Hashimoto’s)
  • Rheumatoid Arthritis
  • Double stranded deoxyribonucleic acid (dsDNA) IgG
  • ANA = Antinuclear Antibody

Each positive test result is accompanied by an anti-inflammatory plan, offering guidance on interpreting results and avoiding pro-inflammatory nutrients.

Celiac Panel: 

Celiac disease (CD) is an autoimmune disorder triggered by gluten—a protein found in wheat, rye, barley, spelt, and some oats. The disease primarily affects the intestinal villi, which contain tissue transglutaminase-2 (tTG2). Deamidated gliadin peptide (DGP) is the preferred biomarker for CD, as it indicates heightened sensitivity to gluten.

Antigens tested include:

  • Tissue Transglutaminase (tTG) IgA
  • Tissue Transglutaminase (tTG) IgG
  • Deamidated Gliadin Peptide (DGP) IgA
  • Deamidated Gliadin Peptide (DGP) IgG

A positive test result includes a comprehensive Gluten Free Diet guide detailing gluten-containing foods, meal ideas, and label reading tips.

Gluten-Related Disorders Panels: 

Gluten-related disorders (GRDs) encompass conditions such as Celiac disease, non-celiac gluten sensitivity, dermatitis herpetiformis, wheat allergy, and gluten ataxia. 

Diagnosing GRDs can be challenging due to the diversity of symptoms that often overlap with other health issues like gastritis, gut dysbiosis, or inflammatory bowel disease (IBD). Testing for gluten reactivity is a common initial step, especially in patients with chronic illnesses.

A positive result from the Gluten-Related Disorders Panel includes a complimentary Gluten Free Diet guide, providing details on gluten-containing foods, sample meal ideas, and tips on reading food labels.

Gluten-Related Disorders Panels include:

Candida and H. Pylori Testing: 

Candida albicans is a commensal yeast that can become invasive, potentially overwhelming the gastrointestinal tract and spreading systemically, with links to conditions like Crohn's disease and multiple sclerosis.  

Candida testing measures IgA/IgG/IgM responses and includes a complimentary Candida Elimination Plan detailing results, causes, and dietary guidelines.

Helicobacter pylori (H. pylori) is a gram-negative bacterium associated with gastrointestinal conditions like ulcers and stomach cancer, and systemic issues including autoimmune and heart diseases; testing focuses on detecting elevated IgG levels to indicate past or ongoing infection.

Comprehensive Gastrointestinal Testing: 

For complex and chronic cases that have evaded diagnosis, Alletess Medical Laboratories offers two comprehensive digestive testing panels to understand the root cause of a patient’s struggles.  

Wellness Plans

Following the diagnostic testing, Alletess Medical Laboratory offers customized Wellness Plans. These plans are tailored based on the individual's test results, providing detailed guidance on dietary modifications, rotation diets, and food reintroduction strategies. 

They also offer nutrition consultations with their dietitians to support patients in implementing their care plan.
